Epinomis, Plato

  • Epinomis: 978.d: "Since Heaven never stops making these bodies ply their course night after night and day..."

The Epinomis forms part of the traditional canon of Plato’s works, although his authorship is doubtful. Diogenes Laertius attributed the work to Philip of Opus. Unlike the other doubtful dialogues, the Epinomis is a literary forgery, and likely a very early work of “Platonist” philosophy.
